This book is downright scary but with its striking research & moving, indelible portraits of life in the digital poorhouse, you will emerge smarter & more empowered to demand justice.Naomi Klein, author of No Is Not Enough & This Changes Everything

Join us on Wednesday, July 11 for a conversation & Q&A with Virginia Eubanks, author of "Automating Inequality: How High-Tech Tools Profile, Police, & Punish the Poor;" & Associate Professor of Political Science at the University at Albany, SUNY.

As automated systems have grown to control more off our lives -- including which neighborhoods get policed, which families attain needed resources, & who is investigated for fraud -- the most invasive & punitive systems are aimed at the poor.

In her latest, Professor Eubanks systematically investigates the impacts of data mining, policy algorithms, & predictive risk models on poor & working-class people in America.

Join us for a conversation about the book & the important issues it tackles, followed by a Q&A, & book signing.

Doors open at 6:30pm. Talk begins at 7pm.

Snacks & Refreshments served.
